Bound by the Beauty Cowl
A gorgeous cabled cowl designed for your handspun. Commercial yarn alternative is Malabrigo Chunky, 1 skein.
This cowl I made from lofty, 2ply chunky yarn, soft and light and cozy around your neck. The cable is big and loose, and I used only one and three-quarters repeats to make it look asymmetrical.
I made it all a little longer than most neck-only cowls (9 > inches vs. the more typical 6 inches), for scrunching and so I could pull it up over the bottom of my ears.
